Loss of revs

Hey all,

I own a 2.0l 156 twinspark and have a small problem. I just jumped in the car, started it and immediately after starting lost all revs. I got it going again but could only keep the engine running by keeping my foot slightly on the accelerator. I drove around a bit but continued losing the revs whenever the accelerator wasn't presses. After a bit i got the bonnet up and wedged the accelerator so the engine would run. I waggled (technical term!) a few pipes and cables, and when i removed the wedge the engine ticks over but at about 800 rpm rather than the usual 1000-1100 rpm. Can anyone advise what this might be and if there are any quick fixes.
